Tail Spin

Tail Spin A New York Times' Critic's Pick! "Jaw-dropping.. A mordantly funny burlesque"– Charles Isherwood, The New York Times "A godsend for comedy."– NY Post "Dratch never misses a beat or a laugh.
(6)

If only politicians were as reliable."– Joe Dziemianowicz, NY Daily News "Outstanding!"– Seth Meyers "A deliciously smart political satire!"– Entertainment Weekly ”Literal dirty politics at their funniest!”– The Hollywood Reporter The truth is laid hysterically bare in Tail! Spin!, a wildly inventive new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts, and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony (“I Was Hacked”) Weiner, Mark (“Appalachian Trail”) Sanford, Larry (“Wide Stance”) Craig, and Mark (“Underage Page”) Foley. Using only the actual words of the disgraced politicians, their paramours, and the skeptical media they tried so hard to spin, Tail! Spin! winningly weaves an intricate, overlapping narrative of the power of sex—and the sex lives of the powerful. Created by NPR contributor Mario Correa and directed by Tony®-nominee Dan Knechtges (Lysistrata Jones, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee), Tail! features a cast of five led by former SNL star Rachel Dratch, as the “Wives, Tails, Beards and Barbara Walters.” Featured Cast: Arnie Burton, Rachel Dratch, Nate Smith, and Tom Galantich.

'Tis the season for giving! Or paying in "Wide Stance" Craig's case.

Ex-Sen. Larry Craig appeals order to pay $242,000 - The Spokesman-Review

'Tis the season for giving! Or paying in "Wide Stance" Craig's case.

Former Idaho Sen. Larry Craig, the newly named finance chairman for the Idaho Republican Party, is appealing a federal judge’s order that he pay $242,000 to the U.S. Treasury to make up for improperly using campaign funds to cover legal expenses incurred after his 2007 arrest in an airport bathroom sex sting. U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson ordered Craig on Sept. 30 to pay the “amount he was unjustly enriched” by using the campaign funds, $197,535, plus a court-imposed $45,000 penalty, “which the Court finds necessary and appropriate to punish defendants’ misconduct and to deter future misconduct by others.”
